The Early Music Show – 

Hosted by Bill Robertson

Imagine hearing the origins of the music of Western civilization! The Early Music Show reaches back to the ancient meditative sacred music and foot tapping dances of the abbeys and troubadours of the first millennium and journeys through seven centuries of music, featuring the friendly madrigals of the Italian and English traditions, sublime motets and music of the Renaissance, Medieval and Baroque eras up to the time of JS Bach – a genre of endless richness and variety. Imagine, and then join us for music of centuries gone by, every Monday evening from 7 til 9 on the Early Music Show.
